so you see, you viscerally feel how scary this voting thing might be. be careful with voting. you might go to jail if you try to vote. in the weeks before the election this year, an anonymous someone paid for dozens of these billboards in largely poor, largely minority neighborhoods in ohio and in milwaukee, wisconsin. across the bottom of the billboard, and in kind of small print, the sign said, quote, paid for by a private family foundation. excuse me. and for a while, that was all that we knew about who was behind these be afraid to vote billboards in mostly black neighborhoods. the corporation clear channel, who sold the ad space on the billboards, they would not say who this private family foundation was. our sister site, the grio later uncovered the name of that private family foundation. it was a conservative foundation in wisconsin, headed up by a husband and wife who were maxed out donors to the mitt romney presidential campaign.
